While metal continues to be snubbed during the Grammy Awards’ televised ceremony, the pre-telecast celebration tends to leave room for a single nod. Body Count won the Grammy for Best Metal Performance for their song, “Bum-Rush,” taken from their latest effort, 2020’s Carnivore. The group virtually-received their award during the pre-telecast ceremony last night (14th). Nominees in this category included Code Orange – “Underneath,” In This Moment – “The In-Between,” Poppy – “Bloodmoney,” and Power Trip – “Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe) – Live.”
The 63rd annual Grammy Awards was originally supposed to occur on January 31st, but it was rescheduled to March 14th due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Last night’s ceremony, hosted by comedian Trevor Noah, aired on CBS at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT, which was also available on CBS streaming services.
Other winners in the rock and alternative categories included Fiona Apple won Best Rock Performance for “Shameika,” Brittany Howard won Best Rock Song for “Stay High,” The Strokes won Best Rock Album – The New Abnormal. Fiona Apple took home The Best Alternative Music Album for Fetch the Bolt Cutters. You can view all of last night’s winners here.
Congratulations, Body Count!
